3:52 pm
we know will not be going far but have served our city with great distinction. i first would like to recognize supervisor christina oh, wack key we have a resolution that will pass unanimously for her services but i would like to read a few lines because kristiney you have served our city. since her childhood supervisor has become a strong advocate for justice and pro live ravings nuclear energy and over the past 30 years she stood against injustice? san francisco by improving conditions in hotel and is affordable hogs for low increase people and from 2010 to 12, she set the bar for progressive land use policy in san francisco and this year christina has
3:53 pm
represented district five and served those neighborhood in our city with passion, commit and an open mind, prioritizing ever each resident department in her districts in order to make district five safe, clean and a abuse place to live and work i'm not going to read the rest of of it but christina thank you i have known you for yeast and i know that we will continue to work together for many years to come and i want to thank you for your open mind and i want to thank you for doing what you thought is right and i want to thank you also for speaking your mind and just again for all that you have done for this board and for your district and for our city and with that, thoi we have a lot of colleagues that want to think let start with supervisor campos. >> thank you very much mr. president and i'll try to be brief i know all of us have
3:54 pm
something to say here. i i want i want to say to my colleague and friend christina owe walk key that it has truly been an honor for me to sit here with you and to work not only with you but with your amazing staff in the last few most. you know the thing about being appointed to the board of supervisors and i have never gone through that process and how crazy and demanding that must be and for those of us who get to this point and normally you go through a campaign process before you get to serve on a board and that has it's own challenges but i think being pointed and having it's own set of challenges that very few people have experienced. and i want to say that the one thing
3:55 pm
that stood out for me was just the very honest way in which you handled yourself and the integrity with which you approach the job and one of the things that i certainly appreciated was the fact that you brought your own perspective as a woman, as a person of color but also as someone who grew up in a very poor background and it was very clear to me, that as you were thinking and analyzing the many issues that came our way, that your person experience and perspective was reflected in what you did and i really appreciated that and i also appreciated the way in which you handle a very tough set of vote and situations and whether you agreed or disagreed with you i
3:56 pm
always respected where you werecosm coming from and the thing about these jobs is that we are not in them for very long. and i think that whatever -- i think that we should be grateful for the service that you provided and for me there were a couple of key votes where i thought that your involvement was critical community choice aggregation i think was one of them which i think will go down as one of the most important votes we handle here and low increase use and i hope it's not a good-bye, i hope it's simply a few phase in the chapter of your life and i look forward to working christina olague in whatever do you because i think you have so much talent and luck for the city and county of san francisco and but it's been an honor to work with you and
3:57 pm
continue to work with you and thank you for the sacrifices may have had for the city. >> thank you i want to say i have had so much fun work wog we first met on the planning commission and then talked about an issue in district and then got to see you up in jackson and fill admonishing more and we will do that whenever you want but really, working on the board of supervisors gether i think you have done such an amazing job for district five and i think it's been a lot of fun working together and we may want agree on every issue on the majority of issues but it doesn't matter at the end. [end] of the day i want you to know how much i really thrum enjoyed working together and i know it's been a long and rough year for you and i hope you get to relax but really it's been a pleasure and a joy and as
3:58 pm
supervisor campos mentioned i hope this is just the beginning and look forward to seeing you around the neighborhood. >> supervisor mar? thank you i know we met when you were an activist for mission agenda year ago and what i have always appreciate appreciated about you as a supervisor is you bring a glass roots sensibility approach to us that sometimes the mainstream immediatee doesn't get but i got it that you stand with the most vulnerable people in our neighborhoods whether they are seniors or veterans in hotels or small property owners and i i also want to say that on former retail ordinance and issues that you have i have worked on you have been a key ally as a
3:59 pm
stronger voice and as on the board of supervisors, i'll refer you as the community voice that always had the community's needs in hind but thank you for working us and we will work together again on many more issues. >> supervisor avalos? hi christina thank you for working here on the board of supervisors i can't imagine the precious that you were understood in rather and from that i heard from so many people how difficult it is for them to do anything they wanted you to do and how strong you have been throughout this process and i
